SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, eBay is launching big December discounts on thousands of items in celebration of 'Green Monday,' historically one of the company's busiest holiday shopping days. Beginning at 5am PT, shoppers can take advantage of amazing prices across tech, fashion, home and more all with free shipping at eBay.com/deals. New deals will launch every hour from 6am PT - 6pm PT.
Created over a decade ago, 'Green Monday' was created by eBay in 2007, when the marketplace experienced one of its biggest sales days on the second Monday of December. In honor of the milestone, eBay named the day 'Green Monday,' a term that has since been widely adopted across the retail industry. Whether shoppers are logging on after the weekend, waiting for great last-minute deals or simply procrastinating, 'Green Monday' continues to be a big online shopping day and has consistently ranked as one of eBay's top five sales days of the year. In fact, in 2017 it ranked as eBay's third-highest sales day during the holidays.
" 'Green Monday' has historically been one of the biggest shopping days of the year for eBay," said Scott Cutler, Senior Vice President of eBay Americas. "We know holiday shoppers are looking for great savings on the hottest 2018 gifts and have a sense of urgency to complete their holiday shopping. On eBay, we guarantee the best prices with our Best Price Guarantee program and are fulfilling last-minute orders with Guaranteed Delivery."
